"Dennis Etchison's writing is a disturbing marvel." � Richard Christian Matheson

"Horror's greatest inconoclast." � Garrett Peck

"Dennis Etchison is one of the jewels of our field. He has raised the short story � whether it be supernatural, science fiction, psychological suspense, or, most provocatively, an indefinable combination of several or all of these � to a level of high artistry that, among current writers, perhaps only Ramsey Campbell and Thomas Ligotti can match." � S.T. Joshi

"The finest writer of psychological horror this genre has produced." � Karl Edward Wagner
